The demand for repeat prescriptions has increased by about 50% since the government announced the strict self-isolation guidance. This is putting immense pressure on dispensaries and pharmacies.
Please don’t order your repeats early or stock-pile medication. Request them (through AskMyGP, SystmOnline, or by phone) no more than 10 days before you are due to run out. Please also note that we can only issue 1 month’s worth of medication, under guidance from Department of Health, Cambridgeshire CCG and GMC.
Due to recent events and to increase safety for patients and staff, we are no longer be able to accept any prescription requests on paper. We kindly ask that you contact us via systmonline, through askmygp or via phone to request your medication. Please also be aware that as we have extended our turnaround time to 5 working days in order to help with the current demand on services. Therefore please request your supply a few days earlier than normal. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
